HC Deb 17 June 1963 vol 679 cc12-3W
Mr. Wade

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer why the exemption from taxation, at present given to Federal German Government annuities paid as compensation to certain German refugees in this country, is not also extended under his regulations to the pensions paid by the Federal German Government as compensation to former State employees.

Mr. Barber

The exemption from United Kingdom Income Tax given by Section 22, Finance Act, 1961, to certain annuities, payable under legislation of the Federal German Republic relating to compensation of victims of National Socialist persecution is confined to those annuities which are specifically exempted from German Tax.
